I just want to thank the archive for everything they've done for us in the past. I understand the situation you've been put in by the Grateful Dead. I suppose I won't be visiting this site too much any more without the Grateful Dead's music, I've been downloading from the site for about a year now and I just wanted to thank you guys for creating such a wonderful resource for us all.

the best way to show your appreciation for the archive, is to not just give up on it now that dead shows are gone. there's a ton of other music here, bands that continue to share the music. give 'em a try, you might find something you like.

Heck, there's still Dead-related bands here: NRPS, P+F, Ratdog, DSO. Not to mention bands that have been associated with or have just jammed with members of the Dead, like Country Joe, the Starship, Cippolina, Dinosaurs, Little Feat, SCI, Henry Kaiser, the Radiators, Bela Fleck, etc. Search on the names of band members, and you'll turn up all sorts of interesting hits.

I was enjoying the Archive long before the Dead showed up here, and I plan to go on enjoying it long after. :)

Yeah, man, check out all the old blues stuff they've got up here, and the old '78s, and the Naropa Institute lectures on Beat literature. This is a great site. There is plenty else here that a lot of Deadheads would be interested in if they took the time to explore it.

Yeah, sure.

Go to the Naropa Institute series and search on anything with Ginsberg or Burroughs. Want to hear Allen Ginsberg recite "Howl"? It's up here. Want to sit in on a multi-part course on writing by William S. Burroughs? It's up here.

Go to the section with old public domain recordings, and search on Bukka White, or Mississippi John Hurt ("Stack O Lee Blues"), or Cannon's Jug Stompers ("Viola Lee Blues"), or just play with the search engine explore the blues and folk recordings sections.

Want to hear a great but little known recent guitarist? Check out Ranier Ptacek...he's up here.

Also, you can hear some great historical recordings on the presidential archive. Ever hear FDR's whole speech from the day after the bombing of Pearl Harbor ("A day that will live in infamy"...how oddly apropos)? It's all up here and downloadable.

I admit I came to this site originally for the Dead, and mainly came back for the Dead, but there is a trove of recordings that are still here and very much worth checking out!
